Hello, Monday: Hit the Ground Running

Ever had a weekend that wasn't quite as weekend-y as you thought it would be?
Had one of those.
Saturday was a good day in some ways, but it was overshadowed by bad (no, more than bad; horrific) news, and I've spent a lot of the weekend praying to know what to say and how to say it.
Fortunately, today was a diagnostic testing day for ELA, so it was quieter than usual today in my room.

Some hellos:
Hello, heat!  

You waited until the last week of August to show up, about the time I always hope you'll go away.  Don't stick around long; I enjoyed your absence.
Hello, stomach bug.  You've arrived early, and you need to vanish quickly.
Hello, teenage hormones.  When you're gone, it will mean my kids are grown.
 I have a love-hate relationship with this truth.
Hello, tomatoes.  You're taking over the counter. 
 That means I should do something with you, doesn't it?
Hello, questions.
 Questions, questions, and more questions.

You are the faith story in progress.
Be blessed,
Ginger
